Wow! These will either inspire a guy or make him feel like an absolute hack. Are these from your collection? How large are these originals?ReplyDelete
I wish they were from my own collection! Occasionally someone will post a nice shot of original art when selling on ebay, or I'll run across them on other websites.ReplyDelete
It's so much different to see a decent scan of the original art, than the reproduction on newsprint.
I don't know the exact sizes of these, but it was common to draw comic strips at 18" wide or more. A Peanuts strip I reproduced by hand was 22" X 5" and was from the 60s.
I agree that these both inspire and make one feel inferior. Luckily I'm leading toward the "inspire" side lately.
